Make him the proud owner of a pair of cuff links (starting at $179.95) made from actual salvaged seats that once held cheering fans at some of America’s most legendary baseball stadiums. What’s so great about this gift is the personalized link to his favorite team’s ballpark, whether it’s Fenway Park, Ebbets Field, Yankee Stadium, or any of 10 other venues across the country from which you can choose. Each set is one-of-a kind and quantities are limited, so order early. He’ll love the way these look with his dress shirts while he shows team pride.
Along those same lines, he’ll treasure a ballpark pen (starting at $189.95) crafted from authentic wooden seats at Busch Stadium, Dodger Stadium, Fenway Park, Wrigley Field, or Yankee Stadium. This artful rhodium-plated writing utensil is shaped like a baseball bat, with a hand-turned wooden barrel and end coated in the weathered, original paint that coated the stadium’s seats. Each pen is engraved with a given stadium’s name and dates, as well as a miniature home plate, and comes with a signed card assuring its authenticity.
This keepsake gift book ($64.95) is guaranteed to hit a home run with the avid football, golf, or baseball aficionado in your family. Each book comprises 60 to 100 pages of original banner news articles that chronicle memorable milestones in his favorite team’s history—or, in the case of golf, that highlight great moments in golfing history. Perhaps he’s a perennial Chicago Cubs fan who likes to remember the glory days or a Steelers backer still smarting from this year’s Super Bowl. Whatever the case, he’ll love this unique gift, which can be further personalized with his name debossed on the stately maroon cover.
Keep him and his golf buddies smiling with a set of 100 wood tees ($29.95, on sale for $14.95) bearing humorous quotes designed to bring good luck on the green. Favorites include, “When there’s a wood, there’s a way,” “When life gives you lemon, take a mulligan,” and “May you hit the ball straight, far, and not too often.” The set comes with a gray nylon travel case that easily fastens to his golf bag with the aid of a silver-tone carabineer clip. And, best of all, you can have the case monogrammed for a unique gift he’ll be proud to show off out on the links.
